Samuel McKay is really not that tired. What he is, is curious about what goes on in the world after he goes to sleep. Sam begins to imagine all the wondrous happenings that go on after he's in bed, from a circus in the kitchen to drains filled with fish and a guest room turned into a zoo. Being not at all that tired, Sam waits until dad has tucked him into bed and said his good-nights, before sneaking out of his room with his Petey Bear, to investigate what really goes on in the house after he's been sent to bed.

What he discovers is not as interesting as he imagined, and Sam soon trundles off back to bed to get a good night's sleep. But did he miss anything on his adventure??

Written by Lori Sunshine, in a rhyming style, and accompanied by lively illustrations by Jeffrey Ebbeler, I'm Really Not Tired is a great children's picture book that is not only fun for parents and grandparents to read to their young ones, but which makes a great bedtime story for little ones who, like Sam, don't think that they are as tired as they really are.

The text is printed in a 16 -point font size, making it ideal for readers who need, or desire, a large print font size. This font size also makes the book an ideal 'starter' book for new readers, while non-readers will enjoy looking at the colorful and detailed pictures. Best of all, readers of all ages will delight in imagining what might be going on in their own homes, after they have gone to bed!
